In her first news conference as a U.S. Senate candidate, Republican Terri Lynn Land says the federal health insurance law is hurting Michigan families by driving up costs.
The ex-Michigan secretary of state offered guidelines for her alternative plan in a teleconference Monday. She's been a candidate since June 2013.
Land says she opposes forcing people to have insurance but supports protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
Land hasn't said whether she supports Medicaid expansion to hundreds of thousands of low-income adults April 1.
The ex-Kent County clerk says she can't say if she would have allowed same-sex marriage licenses to be issued this weekend.
Land is expected to face Democrat Gary Peters in November to fill the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
